I once flew to Paris for a weekend to satisfy a hankering for a banana and Nutella crepe. Seriously. This was over a decade ago, before this country’s major cities had a creperie in every hip neighborhood. I ate nine banana Nutella crepes over the weekend.
Out at Teton Village, Terra Cafe’s new menu has an organic caramelized banana and Nutella crepe on it. It’s called the Monkey Around. In the Village last weekend, I didn’t Monkey Around. I’ve never seen a banana and Nutella crepe on a menu and not gotten it. What made me break with tradition in this instance? Another crepe on the menu: Salted Caramel Apples.
Granny Smith apples, sea salt and an abundance of ricotta all wrapped in a crepe and topped with caramel and toasted pecans. Has Terra Cafe created the world’s tastiest breakfast sugar bomb?
When it arrived, it was the size of my forearm, and I thought there was no way I could eat even half of it. Fifteen minutes later, all but one bite was gone. I almost picked up the plate and licked up the last vestiges of caramel-y goodness. But, Terra Cafe being a classy place, I was able to summon some restraint.
I don’t know if I’ll be able to shows restraint working my way through the remainder of the crepe menu. In addition to Salted Caramel Apples and the aforementioned caramelized banana and Nutella creation, there’s the Berry Patch (Grand Marnier berry sauce and powdered sugar), the Herbivore (mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, organic baby spinach and goat cheese), the Sweet and Salty (ham, brie, and organic baby Swiss), and the Bear Bait (huckleberry, blueberry compote and ricotta).
All of the crepes with the exception of the Berry Patch ($10) are $11. Terra Café serves breakfast from 7 until 11 a.m. daily.
